Yellow x 2



Something got into me today, and I just had to make 2 cards, both with yellows. Yellow is one of my favorite colors, so this was way too much fun.  I did manage to get some other things done, as well... But the best part of the day was cardmaking.  The first card is going into the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.
This is the picture perfect inspiration,


and this is my take:


I used all Bazzill cardstock, Paper Smooches Stamps Spring Groves (bird), and Sentiment Sampler. SU inks, and Mark Richards red nailheads bling.  Super easy.

The next (Yellow) card I made is for the Dynamic Duos #26


You just can't go wrong with a baby card, and using yellow is pretty safe.  This is what I came up with:


I used We R Memory Keepers (gingham), and scraps of polka dots, SU So Saffron ink, star and sentiment stamps, Paper Smooches Eco Friendly dotted line stamps, Memory Box Marshmallow Clouds die, and Memento London Fog ink.
